|AFSCME Local 60 - Municipal & School District Employees of Dane County|
Hundreds of thousands of Walmart workers struggle to afford basic necessities, even though they have a job. That’s why, on Black Friday, AFSCME members and thousands of others across the country will join Walmart workers like Martha and John Paul to protest Walmart’s treatment of its employees.
We know that money can be a big obstacle when it comes to higher education. That’s why AFSCME provides scholarships to help members and their families reach their educational goals.
Noting that action was necessary “because extremists in Congress have failed to do their jobs,” AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued a statement in support of President Obama’s executive order on immigration.
Welcome to the official website of AFSCME Local 60. We are municipal and school district employees working in Dane county.
You are apart of a diverse, powerful organization fueled by its members.
Local 60 is just that – Local. We are working with you here on the ground in Dane county.
A strong union is better able to protect workers’ rights, fight for workplace improvements, and quality of life on the job.
